I graduated with BA/MA(1st Hons) in Architecture from the University of Edinburgh, awarded in June 2021. My RIBA part1 practising periods in Foster+Partners, CallisonRTKL, and Wilson Architecture OMMW enabled me to participate in a few large-scale (over 200,000 sqm) mixed-use projects in Shanghai, Shenzhen, and Beijing.
My postgraduate study starts at the Architectural Association (AA), where I explore the publicness and porosity of architectural objects. From October 2022, I will continue my Master’s degree (RIBA Part II) at the University of Cambridge
The forthcoming research project focuses on sustainable urban design and circular maker cities in the Chinese socio-economic/political and environmental context. The research scope includes but is not limited to sustainable regeneration strategies for Chinese slum transformations (e.g. collapsing villages, dilapidated inner-city housing) and a Circular Economy framework that connects architecture, materials, law, politics of labour and economy.
